When we found a bakery/restaurant we had eaten in two years ago closed, we walked into Cucina Paradiso pretty much by accident; it was after 1:00 PM and there were several occupied tables. For lunch we had a sausage panino and chicken salad. Both were outstanding - really memorable! And service could not have been better. Our only regret is... More

We were a walk in & was able to sit at the bar on a very busy Friday night. Fabulous food! Excellent service! I had the pasta with prosciutto & asparagus...WOW..the sauce was so light...EVO! My husband had the lamb chops....he didn't talk the whole time...lol...just little " mmmm" "ohhhhh"! Of course were in wine country..so your choices are endless

Been here a number of times. The food never disappoints! Staff is friendly and atmosphere is positive. It's a good place for a date, or have a nice meal with friends.

I have written reviewa on Cucina 2-3 times at least, as it is among our favorites in Petaluma. Usually, our 3 yr. old grandson accompanies us and always wanders into the kitchen and says hi and shakes hands with his "Amigos," the chefs. A few weeks ago we dined there and he didn't do that as we had his mother... More

Stopped here for dinner the first night in town and it was definitely a good choice! The food was very nicely prepared, fresh and tasty! They are true Italian and all four of us had something different and loved them all! I had the special of the day which was sea bass and it was just wonderful! Would recommend!

Ate there our first nite in Petaluma. Liked it so much we went back for our anniversary dinner. Hard to get used to California prices, but food was really tasty, nice atmosphere and quality service.

The food is terrific. They can definitely be crowded. It can be noisy at times but I've never had a bad meal here.

They have some the best Italian around They make their pasta fresh and you can tell, the food is to die for, don't try it without a reservation though, I'm not alone in the appreciation of this place.

I enjoyed the dinner. The pasta dish I ordered was good. I can't say any of the food wow' me. The acoustics are challenging. It was very difficult for us to hear each other speak. Very loud, in my opinion. People I think all started talking louder so they could be heard over the noise volume.

well this place really is worth waiting in line for. The service from the time you reach the door is great, We normally book but if we see 2 seats at the bar , thats where we prefer to eat. The Bar people are great with good knowledge . The food is pricey but you get what you pay for.... More
